Sheila Jackson Lee originally from Salem
In mid 1700s New England, women charged as witches were interrogated and severely punished, most being put to death. Today one of the current worshippers of darkness has had the spelling changed from “witch” to Sheila jackson Lee, became a democrat and relocated to Texas. Where instead of being punished as in 1752 Salem, MA, she is elected to congress. Go figure.
At present, instead of making potions of toads and bats or making public incantations, (I offer no insight into what she dark arts she may work in private), she from congress publicly insinuates that those who are opposed to giving Obama/congress another blank check sans any attention to the grave financial circumstances the country faces, are racist.
Since when has demanding financial responsibility and reduced spending become an issue of race? Accusations of racism and race-based ad hominem attacks are the last best argument of those unable to defend their position through cogent dialogue and debate. It is the mace, those bereft of character and cursed with minds smaller than their mouths, but having the right amount of melanin content – use in hopes of getting their way.
But that is changing. Those not possessing the darkness of spirit and/or color of Sheila jackson Lee are much less likely to tolerate her bigotry. And they are right not to. I have been arguing for many years, our basis for agreement cannot be because of intimidation and fear of ad hominem racial accusations. Based on Jackson Lee’s morally opprobrious character, it’s difficult to say if she would be accusing those of us calling for financial responsibility of our government, as racist if Obama was given a blank check.
It is unconscionable for her to foment racial discord because we are calling for restraint. Do her children call her a racist for not granting them their every desire without expecting accountability? Does her staff call her a racist because members of her black staff are paid more than members of her white staff? Does she even have white staff? Is she a racist because she looks favorably on the worst example of American leadership in history simply because he’s partially Kenyan?
We cannot expect Sheila Jackson Lee to grasp the ignorance of her comments, because they are in keeping with her character. But, we can demonstrate our objection to her and her pathological ignorance by publicly condemning her and all those who use race as currency to get their peevish desires.
